When using Import with a url what information is broadcasted/sent to the receiving end of the request and is it possible to monitor/modify that information?

    $\begingroup$ It might be easier to do something like ImportString[URLRead[url]] and modify the parameters in URLRead $\endgroup$ – Carl Lange Feb 23 at 19:12

You can use NetworkPacketRecording or NetworkPacketCapture to record / capture network packet activity during Import.

You could also use a tool like Wireshark

Can you elaborate on what you mean by "modify that information"?

There is not documentation for this at this time, I suggest using ImportString[URLRead[url]] etc like Carl suggests.
